Help for the Holidays

Help for the Holidays

There are lots of holiday festivities over a 40 day period, starting in November with Thanksgiving. This is the most joyful time of the year when we can eat great foods, enjoy good company and laughter with our dear friends and precious families. A lot of my clients complain that they over-indulge on all the delicious holiday food items when they are with friends and family.  However, I believe friends and family are very important and we should cherish the time spent together, including when we overeat during the holidays.


To help with the holiday bloating, I would like to share two wonderful essential oil blends that I use for the holiday season: doTerra Digest Zen and Slim & Sassy. Digest Zen helps to assist digestion, whereas Slim & Sassy works to control your metabolism so that you can keep your weight under control.
